Up until this point, everything was running smooth. I got my CAR appointment out of the way, and the counselors were really nice, assuming you could actually reach one. If you want to reach a counselor via appointment or drop-in, good luck. They are all booked. I called the number to make an appointment, the person who I reached was very rude, and all the counselors were booked for the entire week. I tried leaving voicemail messages, no response, I tried emailing some of the counselors, all automated responses that were of no help. Then I tried a drop-in appointment. I waited for a full hour before I decided to just wait it out and get an appointment whenever one came up. Thanks for wasting an hour of my time Ohlone!

Ohlone College has a lot of dedicated teachers who truly care about the work they are doing there. Professors here will actually make time for you, and will help you with any questions you have on transferring to a four-year institution. Not only do they have a second campus in Newark, CA but they also have a great Transfer Center, Office of Student Life, Health Center, a beautiful campus, and they’re really close to San Jose and San Francisco! Also, the campuses are very safe.

The only con is that until they finish construction, there isn’t going to be any good food on campus for awhile.
Ohlone College is a great place to start for your college career as it provides excellent resources and curriculum pathways that supports any student's academic endeavor. With providing the general education courses necessary for transfer, this college also provides various certification for non-health related majors and degrees for nursing, physical assisting, and respiratory therapy. Besides, having a pleasant experience throughout my attendance in this school , I have enjoyed the feel of the Fremont Campus, which is located in the hills of Fremont, CA. It is relatively close to college student comforts such as the Mission Coffee Shop, Ohlone Deli, and food establishments in the Pacific Common area.
